Long Description:
The former restaurant Copper Cart, is now an Auto Gift Store, and has several old & vintage cars parked outside the store.

The Copper Cart neon sign is a 30s era representation of the Copper Ore Cart, typical of the carts used in the local Arizona copper mines. The Copper Cart Motorporium, Neon Sign, and cars parked in its vicinity, scream Americana.

From The Road Wanderer:
"Seligman, Arizona is a Route 66 town all the way. This delightful town retains all the flavor of the old road. A trip down Route 66 in Seligman is a trip back in time to the days when Route 66 was the Main Street of America. Founded in 1895 after the completion of the "Peavine" Railroad (see Ash Fork) the railroad camp known as Prescott Junction officially became Seligman and was an important railroad stop along the line. Seligman embraced Route 66 wholeheartedly upon its arrival in the late 1920’s. The railroad and tourist traffic from Route 66 became Seligman's main source of economic security. In the late 1970's Seligman was bypassed by the Interstate and the Santa Fe Railroad ceased its operations in the town in 1985. Many old towns with similar histories would have faded away once they were bypassed, but not Seligman." Text source: (visit link)
